P. Diddy is a Bad Boy!

Former Bad Boy rapper Mark Curry is releasing a tell-all book about his time at the record label.

In the book, which is titled Dancing With the Devil, Curry speaks on Diddy’s penchant for stealing artists’ shine and charging them strange fees.

“Puff has an annoying habit of inserting himself into the songs and videos of all the artists on his label and its common knowledge that many Bad Boy acts resented him for this,” writes Curry. Asked about his practice in the July 1995 issue of a magazine aimed at black teenagers, Puff said: “I like performing with my artists. I like talking on the records and I like being in the videos. It protects my interests in terms of what I’m going to do in the future. Say if a company tries to remove me. It’s going to be hard to remove me and still have my acts and [have] the same level of intensity and the same flavor and feeling.”

“Puff charged the artists for his appearance on their records and videos, usually without [them] realizing it until they receive their royalty statements,” wrote the rapper, who was known for his appearance on the hit Bad Boy for Life.”That’s when they discovered that their large sums of money had gone to fees which were doubled, tripled and even quadrupled because of Puff’s ‘special appearances.’ He charged artists, for example, for having his Bentley in his videos-which he insisted upon- then took tax credit for business use of a car.”

Dancing With the Devil is slated for a February release.
